Patreon Invites Creators of Color to 'Pull Up' With New Incubator Program

The membership platform's newest initiative offers resources to marginalized small business owners

Leaders from Glossier, Shopify, Mastercard and more will take the stage at Brandweek to share what strategies set them apart and how they incorporate the most valued emerging trends. Register to join us this September 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Since its inception, Patreon has provided a space for independent creators to make additional income while connecting directly with their most fervent supporters. For many marginalized creators, the membership platform is a vital, if not wholly necessary, extension of their small business or portfolios. But any venture is only as effective as the resources at the creator’s disposal and for creators of color, gaining access to those resources can be pose a serious challenge.

It is my hope that the program serves as a conduit for creators of color to retain ownership of their work, inspire community and foster change to help generations coming up.
